The Surprising Place Where You Find Joy

This is something that I’ve been thinking about recently. Sure, you may wonder where or how this concept “where you find joy” fits into a marketing blog, but I feel that we should all be pursuing joy. No, I don’t mean the blonde from the accounting department, I mean actual joy.

I think that many of us feel that we should just be happy, but if you think back about the times that you were really happy and joyful, there is usually some amount of work that was involved in getting there.

Whether you are wanting to lose weight, or wanting to get more customers to your business, joy usually comes from motivation, inspiration and perspiration that propels you towards the results that you want to achieve.

Inspiration

This is where you get the idea. The muse that gives you the spark to take action and accomplish something.

Motivation

This is what keeps you going. Anyone can start something, or talk about how they want to start something, but motivation is what keeps you going when you want to stop.

Perspiration

Anything that is worth doing, requires some work. Hard work makes you sweat, hence you need some perspiration in order to accomplish your goals, or goal as the case may be.

Basically, inspiration gets you moving, motivation keeps you moving and perspiration is the work that you do to get you there. Joy is where these 3 things live in harmony.

Isn’t that what it’s all about? Living in joy and harmony and whatever?

Back when I was really into this blog and really into blogging in general, I felt joy when people told me that they liked my drivel. Anyway, I made this graphic and wanted to share it with y’all because I felt inspired to put it out there.

What do you think about where do you find joy?
